Wow I am so opposite because I swear I started showing 2 weeks ago and I am only 10 weeks today! My pants already dont fit anymore and I had to go buy new tops yesterday because I needed longer shirts that cover more.

I’m currently 17 weeks and I have a very tiny bump. Only people that are really studying me will notice. I’ll be 23 weeks on my wedding so hopefully I won’t pop before then!!

@Lemon-Squeezy:  I’m just shy of 37 weeks now, and I’m still smaller than average. Actually, this might help you!

19 weeks

24 weeks (Seriouly still looking like I had a huge dinner)

28 weeks (Finally a visible bump but only from the side and only in certain shirts–Also, that is cranberry apple cider! NOT wine!)

32 Weeks (FINALLY! NO question, clearly pregnant)

And my 36 week shot, where I’m finally getting big!

@trixiesrockets:  Thanks! I was so worried with being so overweight that I wouldn’t show at all and just look huge and fat so it’s been a pleasant surprise to be so pregnant looking! I love my preggo belly 🙂

I started showing about 20-21 weeks…before that I definitely didn’t have the flat stomach anymore – I was bloated like crazy! I knew it was finally bump when it was there in the morning 

🙂 when it was bloat I was flat in the morning!

In general, not taking account for torso length, the stronger your abs, the later you’ll start to show. I have a short torso and didn’t really start showing until I was 20 weeks.

I started taking my bump photos at 17 weeks. Now when I look back at my pictures it makes me smile because I was SO excited to have a bump at 17w =) I think I looked obviously pregnant to the public around 24/25weeks.

I was a size 14 when I got pregnant with my oldest at 19. Started showing a very noticeable bump at 16 weeks.

With my youngest, I was showing around 12.

Long torso and 6’0″ here. I think I looked visibily pregnant around 22/23 weeks but I was not obviously pregnant to others until 28 weeks.

I am 5 feet even and was a size 12 to start…I started showing very early.  When I asked the midwife why she said “he doesn’t have much room to go but out.”  I got big fast too and gained 40lbs if it helps.



Last bump photo I took..went to 38w5d

Plus size (18) to start. Family noticed at 14 weeks, but I think it became noticable at 18 weeks to everyone else.

@aliciapdx:  You look so cute in your dress!! I’m 5ft and not ttc yet, but I’m happy to know the bump comes sooner for us. Finally, being short has an advantage!
